Hospital mortality according to diagnostic category. Survival curves were obtained using the Kaplan Meier estimator. Four diagnostic categories were compared: (1) Infectious: pneumonia as defined by a clinically or microbiologically documented low respiratory tract infection. (2) Noninfectious: patients with non-infectious diagnoses, mostly corresponding to cases of ARF from pulmonary infiltration by the malignancy [26], cardiac pulmonary edema and drug-related pulmonary toxicity [27]. (3) Opportunistic infection: patients with ARF from opportunistic infections (probable or proven invasive pulmonary aspergillosis according to EORTC criteria [37], pneumocystis pneumonia, other cases of invasive fungal infections, CMV infections or parasitic infections [33]. (4) Undetermined diagnosis
